But if you are not aware about bookmarking in web browser then just check in your web browser there will be an option of bookmark in Menu Options of your web browser. When you click on bookmark option then the web address of current website is saved in the cache memory of web browser and in future whenever you need to open that particular website or webpage then you do not need to search that website again. You only need to open bookmarked websites from your web browser and that website opens before you without searching the web. This is the simple concept of bookmarking.
